    Maybe he never heard of an eye mask for sleeping? Seems like a much better option than a tantrum.

    People like this guy should be trown off the flight - while it's still in the air.

    I'd like to see charge(s) pressed against the tantrum thrower.

    At a very minimum Alaska should ban him from future flights.

    I think they should press charges as well, but that would require logical decision making from a government agency, and the odds of that, in any given case, are usually 50-50 at best.

    As for banning him from future flights, my guess is there's also, at best, a 50-50 chance of that. I've noticed that when there are news articles regarding disruptive passengers, it's not all that often that airlines ban someone permanently. They probably are willing to tolerate some of that in exchange for the hope of getting money in the future from the offender. :(:confused::mad:

    Ban him? He should be given a medal. How dare someone read these days! ;)
    /sarcasm off

    OT a bit but I had someone throw a fit on the DC metro b/c I was standing in his spot. Lots of strange folks out there.

    I think he should be doused with Jet-A and set a blaze as an example to the others.

    No, I think it's perfectly fine for Alaska to not do business with those people anymore, but I'd rather not have the government no-fly list be even more expanded and watered down.
